Mike Einziger surprised audiences when he performed at the singer’s Istana Budaya show last night.
Audiences at singer Yuna’s concert in Istana Budaya in Kuala Lumpur last night had a pleasant surprise when she announced that Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger will be joining her on stage.
“We met after he found out I covered one of his band’s song. Now we’ve become good friends,” said Yuna to the audience.
Einziger played his guitar while Yuna performed Deeper Conversation, Mr Musician and I Wanna Go.
She also covered Incubus’ I Miss You.
Tickets to all three scheduled Yuna shows at Istana Budaya on Oct 6-8 are sold out. Yuna is the third person in the history of Istana Budaya to have sold out tickets weeks before concert.
Other performers to have achieved such feat are Datuk Siti Nurhaliza and pop crooner Anuar Zain.
The Los Angeles-based singer and artiste, who is signed under David Foster’s Verve Records, also performed Terukir Di Bintang, Decorate and her new single Lelaki at the two-hour concert.
Yuna’s performance was backed by the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Mustafa Fuzer Nawi.
At a press conference after the show, she revealed that her first full-length album under Verve Records will be out at the end of October.
